1)
m-3z>0
m>3z
m>z
not sufficient

2)
m-4z>0
m>4z
m>z
not sufficient.

Together, not sufficient either (as both mean the same thing).

1) m > 3z Obviously insuff.
2) m< 4z as above

However (1) + (2) imply that 3z < m < 4z , hence 3z < 4z this holds true
only for z > 0. Since z > 0 , m > 3z > 0 . Hence m+z > 0 . Sufficient.

C it is

I would say (C),

1) gives m>3z
Not sufficient

2) gives m < 4z
Not sufficient as well

(1) and (2) implies :

3z < m < 4z which means z > 0
(otherwise for exemple if z=-1 , we cannot say -3 < m < -4 : m < -4 and m > -3)

it emplies that m > 0 and so m + z >0
